Specifications

Tasting

1st vintage 100% Merlot, La Devise de Lilian 2021 expresses a beautiful structure, a nice nose of tangy red fruits, fresh raspberry and spicy cocoa. The mouth is silky, round, and reveals a finish of fresh almonds. The tannins, still astringent, will soften with aging to offer a refined and balanced wine.
